Learning more scales.
 
I know the blues and pent maj and minor scales by heart and can use them effective. Now I'm moving onto the major scale.
Got sick of the other scales cause in a set. All my solos would soud the same kinda. Hopefully with more scales. I can mix it up.
Any thing I should know about major and minor scale besides this the base for all soloing....
I mostly like bluesy,classic rock, modern music style solos.
I've spent some time on justinguitar.com.

Knowing your scales are important, no doubt. But you'd be better off focusing on your ear and getting the sound you want instead of relying on new scales to get the sound. Learn the major scale, but then i seriously recommend you work on your ear. A good ear is better then memorizing alot of scales.

In those styles of music I wouldn't bother learning going crazy and learning a bunch of scales. Your major and minor is all you need, and for many people they seem to work together when simplified just to pentatonics. Focus more on new patterns and melodys within the scales you know. You'd be amazed at what some people can do just with a blues scale or regular minor pentatonic. Also, you may know this but I didn't for a long time, you during the blues you can mix the major and minor scales up when playing over a blues track. It gives a you a little more variety and I think it makes it easier to make it sound a little more dramatic.
